The Evil Within 2 job listing suggests horror sequel is in development

Shocked?

During last year's QuakeCon, Bethesda vice president Pete Hines sparked rumours about a potential follow-up to Shinji Mikami's 2014 survival horror game The Evil Within when he suggested the original sold enough to merit a sequel. It seems The Evil Within 2 is now, in fact, being made. 

That's if a job listing picked up by Neogaffers is to be believed. According to Google Translate, the Japanese posting is for a UK bug report translator on Psycho Break 2—which is what The Evil Within is called in Japan. 

The advert also lists PS4 and Xbox One in its "hardware target" heading, however, assuming this is legitimate, an Evil Within sequel would almost certainly land on PC. With E3 just around the corner, I reckon an official announcement could show up there. Here's the seemingly leaked job description:
